Rise and Shine

Full Text

Rise and Shine, a new day's dawning
Chance to make a better day
Rise and Shine, get up, stop yawning
Chance to go a diff'rent way
One more chance to join the tussle
One more chance before the night
Chance to lend my mind and muscle
Chance to fin'ly get things right

2 Rise and Shine, the page is turning
Turning into destiny
Rise and Shine, the book is closing
Closing into history
No more time for nursing sorrow
No more time to wish and whine
Time is now and not tomorrow
Time is now to Rise and Shine.
